Tzutes


San Mateo Ixtatán

San Mateo Ixtatán

Striking design from the very remote town of San Mateo Ixtatán in the Guatemalan department of Huehuetenango. This vintage tzute is actually a huipil that has not been finished. New huipiles are generally purchased by their owners unfinished. They then decide what style and decoration they want for the collars and sleeves. This beautiful ‘unfinished’ huipil has many uses, from carrying items to wearing folded on the head. This tzute measures 32″ wide and 59″ long.

This tzute is lovely with its hand-embroidered design in brilliant colors of red, yellow, purple, black, and blue sewn on a simple muslin cotton background. The design has the round ‘suns’ radiating from the center as the traditional design from San Mateo Ixtatán.

This tzute is in very good used condition for its age, with a few minor signs of wear. There is a slight discoloration in some areas of the muslin and a couple of marks left from where the artist outlined their woven design.
